Effective Wall Insulation

Properly sealed, moisture-protected, and insulated walls help increase comfort, reduce noise, and save on energy costs. However, walls are the most complex component of the building envelope to insulate, air seal, and control moisture.

The keys to an effective wall are:

Residential Wall Insulation:

FOAM-INSULATION-WALL2

Little Product… BIG Benefits!
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation is rigid, lightweight, flexible, wind resistant, and effective in extreme temperatures and weather conditions. SPF insulation has the highest R-value per square inch of any commercially available insulation material.
Total Comfort Control, Not Just R-Value
The building envelope is a system of construction components which protect against the uncontrolled movement of: heat, air, and moisture. The true performance of your building envelope can not be measured with the R-value of the insulation alone, but must also consider air movement, moisture control, health, safety, durability, comfort, and energy efficiency.

This is true whether your building is commercial, residential, or multifamily: SPF addresses all these needs in both new construction and improvements to existing structures. Six Mechanisms of Heat Loss Through a Wall or Ceiling That Are Bad for Your Home and Your Health:

Commercial Wall Insulation

Air Sealing

Air sealing reduces heat flow from air movement (convection) and prevents water vapor in the air from entering the wall. In a 100-square-foot wall, one cup of water can diffuse through drywall without a vapor barrier in a year, but 50 cups can enter through a 1-inch, round hole. In fact, sealing air leaks is 10 to 100 times as important as installing a vapor barrier.

Closed Cell Wall Polyurethane Wall Foam

Closed cell polyurethane wall foam provides an insulation value of 6.7-7 per inch and provides an air barrier at an application thickness of 1 in. Here are some of the additional benefits provided by closed cell wall foam:

Open Cell Wall Polyurethane Wall Foam

Open cell polyurethane wall foam provides an insulation value of 3.5 per inch. Here are some of the additional benefits provided by open cell wall foam:
